So, recently, I've been talking about forcing other people to watch movies/TV shows. I mentioned Star Trek in particular, but I easily could have mentioned something else like The Godfather or Beatles music.
My family sort of has a history with forcing people to like things.
I blame Grandma, who forced her children to watch Shirley Temple movies, when they were on TV every Sunday. The kids literally didn't have a choice, when it came to liking Shirley Temple.
Mom did the same thing her mother did, and she forced her children to like certain movies. But now that I'm older, I can see that I didn't like the movies; Mom was the one who liked them. I think I can finally admit that I don't really like Absolutely Fabulous, A Christmas Story or Grease.
Also, Mom, stop quoting the bundt cake scene from My Big Fat Greek Wedding. I know it is humorous that they mispronounce the word "bundt", but that joke lost its charm about fifty repetitions ago.
Where was I? Ah, yes, forcing people to watch certain movies and TV shows. I know I've been complaining about it, but in all honesty, I'm pretty sure I do the exact same thing. Why, if I had a girlfriend, I would absolutely force her to play Nancy Drew games and watch my complete collection of 6teen DVDs. And then she'd dump me because I'm a mean, controlling boyfriend. That's why I haven't had a date in four years.
So really, I don't think I have any right to complain here. I probably push my interests on other people just as much as other people push their interests on me. It's sort of a family tradition at this point.
